contacted was the recent letters that were sent to senator wicker, as well as president obama. the information that we received from the fbi of the content that those two letters contained, the way that the letters were typewritten to those two individuals, the postmark similarity that we had, it raised suspicion that there could possibly be a connection to the letter that we received in justice court. the next step that we took was a joint effort in investigating what we could about what this substance was that was inside the letter that we had. as you all know, the federal authorities released the information as far as the content that they believed was placed inside the two letters to senator wicker, as well as president obama. their team and other government officials arrived at our facility. we staged them on our north parking lot. there's a portable laboratory that was brought in. they came in and took possession of our letter, which is the justice court letter that was received on april 10th. that particular letter, content and envelope has been analyzed at the laborato

points memo. president obama gave a rousing speech in boston today saying that the city would never give into violence and the nation will never be defeated by terrorists. this time next year on the third monday in april, the world will return to this great american city to run harder than ever and cheer even louder for that 118th boston marathon fill bill nice job with that speech. yesterday the president's tone was very different. he was angry about losing the gun control legislation in the senate. as you may know that body failed to pass background checks. five democrats even voted against the new law. all of them from progun states why did the background checks fail. sane people stopped from buying guns. every sane person knows that checks will not keep guns out of the bad people. they will buy weapons illegally. if the president were really serious about protecting malcolm jenkins from gun violence he would federalize gun crimes and attach a criminal justice component to the gun check legislation. here is what mr. obama should do. registering firearms should be in this country. use
president obama's agenda. why should you relate those two guys to immigration? no, let immigration go through. i hope they have the sense of know-how that when they bring this gun bill back -- they brought the health care bill back -- that they vote right. people in this country are hurting. all these republicans do, let's stop obama. republicans, wake up to rick the 90/10 want gun control. people all around the country want to elect this president and want to get his agenda to help this country. host: we will take a look at the prospects for gun control later on this morning. let's go to virginia, the independent line. caller: i just wanted to say that immigration has long been overdue, and we should not have any reason to put it off any more than we have. fromnot see the connection boston to immigration. you can never stop anybody that is wanting to do harm. the same thing in connecticut, the newtown shootings, anything like that. it is sporadic, no matter how much legislation you have, over immigration, gun control, anything like that. i do not think we can afford to put it off any
. >> stephanie: all right. the president yesterday speaking about -- >> obama: given what we now know about what took place, the fbi is investigating it as an act of terrorism. any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians it is an act of terror. >> stephanie: that's the important thing is making sure bill o'reilly is happy with the semantics. >> he didn't call it terror! >> it seems like the far right all they cared about yesterday was semantics. something that they didn't hear in president obama's statement to the nation. >> he didn't blame the arabs. >> they didn't care about the victims in boston. they only cared about the words president obama did or didn't use. >> stephanie: not in a good place yesterday with worrying about wanda and i made a grey error in that i listened to rush limbaugh. >> oh, don't do that! >> stephanie: i shouldn't have done that. i don't even understand some people -- not only as partisans but as just carbon-based life forms. he just was being snarky and you know, making benghazi jokes. i wonder if there was a video -- no one knows. we'll find out. really? >>

, there is no limitation. president obama says this. some members of my party say the battle has no geographic limitations, and the laws of war apply. it's important to know that the law of war that they're talking about means no due process. boyleston street sure looked -- "i quote from the" wall street journal "editorial." boyleston street sure looked like a battlefield on monday and so did watertown on thursday night. the artificial distinction arises from undue focus on geography. the vital distinction for public safety is between common criminals who deserve due process protections and enemy combatants at war with the united states wherever they are. as for due process, the greatest danger to liberty would be to allow more such attacks that would inspire an even greater public backlash against muslims or free speech or worse. the antiterror types on the left and g.o.p. senators who agree that the u.s. isn't part of the battlefield are making the united states more vulnerable. americans erupted in understandable relief and gratitude on friday with the rapid capture of the terrorist brothers, but we sh

obama and adding to the song "yes, we can: voices of a grassroots movement," she has well sung the national anthem at the national championship football game and as well she has given a lot of contributions to american music. she is a supporter of music education for our children, the mother of a daughter and, yes, a prominent american. but i think if we could say the most about yolanda adams is that she never stops evangelizing and seeking to help those who are hopeless and in despair. she brings joy to those who seek it and believes that everyone is a child of god. i'm grateful to know yolanda adams and to claim her as a constituent of the great city of houston and the great state of texas. but most of all, she's an american who is a believer and understands the value of america's freedom to be able to worship. she continues to soldier on to save souls and we're delighted to have been able to have her bless us this morning. mr. speaker, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the chair will entertain five further requests for one-minute speeches on each side of the aisle. the
had a chance to fly back with president obama for the special mass that we had -- special service we had at the holy cross cathedral. i have to honestly say i have not seen my president so mad, so angry, so frustrated as he was at that vote that was basically forced by the n.r.a. on the republican caucus in the u.s. senate. i think that ed is right in the sense in that we have to make sure the forces for accountability are greater than the forces of the n.r.a. and of these special interest groups whoever they may be. there should be a course of independence. i'm happy to say that i have always taken that independence stand. i have suffered for it sometimes, and -- but i think -- look, i know who i work for in the united states house. i know who i'll work for in the united states senate. it won't be any democratic leaders. it won't be the people who picked mr. markey. it will be the people of massachusetts that i work for. >> mr. markey. >> look, i'm proud to have been endorsed by the "boston globe" yesterday. and by the sierra club. and by groups that are trying to end gun violence,

within these agencies, not a congress. under the obama administration, immigration agents can no longer arrest those who violate.s depression agents cannot arrest an individual for entering the united states illegally. we can arrest and individual who illegally overstays a visa. immigration agents are prohibited from enforcing law regarding fraudulent documents theft.ntifty agents are urged to apply the dream to adults inmates in jails and releasing adults back into the communities, criminals who have committed felonies, assault and our officers are and who prey on children. at the same time, ice officers are punished that trend by dhs and ice leadership, with a loss of their jobs, simply because they attempt to off enforce the law. and provide for public safety. since the gang of eight has chosen to ignore enforcement officei ha uld ke to ask them publicly. dick rubio, chuck schumer, durbin, john mccain, pat leahy, lindsay graham, robert menendez, jeff flake, michael beck, as united states senators, representatives of the people, where have you been for the last four years? what have y

complement president obama's request and reflect the undisputable fact that statehood won the november referendum. puerto rico stands in a far different place today than it did six months ago. an historic referendum was held. the president responded to the results and congress now has the responsibility to act. those who seek the equality and progress for puerto rico are on the forward march while those who support the same old status quote are in retreat would drive the debate, while they merely react to the debate. and in the end mindful that the arc of history's long bends the justice, i am confident we will prevail. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from california, ms. lee, for ive minutes. ms. lee: thank you, mr. speaker. let me first send my thoughts and prayers to the city of boston, families and friends and all those touched by yesterday's horrific tragedy. an incredible strength on full display in the streets of boston when untold numbers of people, the police, firefighters, volunteers, r
